detailsA charming falconer and a magnificent raptor.
Admiring this splendid scene in the grounds of an Austrian castle, and gazing at their expressions, I had the strange feeling that they were both sharing the same thoughts while contemplating the imposing summits of the Austrian Alps.

Sometimes photography is capable to capture something deeper and more profound than a simple image.

Once more you caught the essence Karolos. One of your best, in my opinion. The choice of this pov accentuates the majestic posture of both your subjects and proves your high technique in portraiture. I am wondering if you kneeled in front of her. She is really charming. Lol. Best regards Elli.

p.s. I admire your diversification of subjects which never bores me. I try hard to imitate you, but I still have a long way ahead.

Stunning portrait, Karolos. The poses of both subjects is the strongest point of the picture. An obviouis readiness of the eagle for an immediate taking off and a pride of the nice falconer for being able to have such a wonderful bird, are simply amazing. Everything is perfect like always. My congrats for your achievement.

I would like to echo Elli's comment about your refreshing ability to produce such a diverse range of photos.
I think I may have said previously that a particular posting was then your best yet-may I update this by saying the Falconer now tops your list, focussing as it does on the obvious enjoyment for both handler and bird that their shared activity brings them.
10 Gaga (Dragan Babovic)   (6/14/2007 3:54:46 AM)

I thank you all from my heart for all your kind words.
The ‘FALCONER’ image is very important for me because this scene, while capturing it, impressed my a lot.
As Elli said in her comment, I really kneeled in front of the magnificence of both the charming lady and the proud raptor.
Believe me that in this image I succeeded to capture only a part of this imposing scene.
I feel sorry, but unfortunately from next week on I will not have enough time for PB, because I recently undertook more professional obligations as an attorney in law.
I will try hard to come in the site at least very early in the morning, very late in the night and only for some small intervals during the day.
I frankly appreciate all your support to my work.
